Properties of Streamer Wave Events Observed During the STEREO Era View all abstracts by submitter

Transverse waves are sometimes observed in solar helmet streamers, typically after the passage of a coronal mass ejection (CME). The CME-driven shock wave moves the streamer sideways, and a decaying oscillation of the streamer is observed after the CME passage. Previous works generally reported observations of streamer oscillations taken from a single vantage point (typically the SOHO spacecraft). We conduct a data survey searching for streamer wave events observed by the COR2 coronagraphs onboard the STEREO spacecraft. For the first time, we report observations of streamer wave events from multiple vantage points, by using the COR2 instrument on both STEREO A and B, as well as the SOHO/LASCO C2+C3 coronagraphs. We investigate the properties of streamer waves by comparing the different events and performing a statistical analysis. Common observational features give us additional insight on the physical nature of streamer wave events. The most important conclusion is that there appears to be no relation between the speed of the CME and the phase speed of the resulting streamer wave, indicating that the streamer wave speed is determined by the physical properties of the streamer rather than the properties of the CME. This result makes streamer waves events excellent candidates for coronal seismology studies. From a comparison between the measured phase speeds and the phase speeds calculated from the measured periods and wavelengths, we could determine that the speed of the post-shock solar wind flow in our streamers is around 300 km s-1.
